"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

Dilip Mukerjea, writing in his book, 'Building BrainPower: Turning Grey Matter into Gold', offers the following Action Points for Your Creativity:

1) Recognise your uniqueness and build on your strengths. You DO NOT have poor memory, you CAN learn how to remember because it is one your natural strengths.

2) Make and maintain your own Creative Thinking Zone.

3) Break your own moulds - new clothes, persona, activities and so on.

4) Play with children - and rediscover (recover) the child within yourself.

5) Create spaces and times (spacetimes) to rest. Catnap regularly if nighttime sleep is a problem.

6) radiate out on notes - use colour, imagery and symbolism.

7) Set memory targets on a daily basis, and very soon, incremental improvements will metamorphose into quantum accomplishments.

8) Pose hypo-problems and work at solving them. Try this without pen and paper, play Creative Mind Games to provoke synaptic connections. This will also help build your spatial intelligence.

9) Read widely, and deeply. Become polymathic. Readers make Leaders!

10) Meet new peoples, experience unfamiliar cultures, and keep observing with a fascination towards life.
